The Senate President, David Mark has declared that the Nigerian armed forces were winning the war against insurgency and other violent crimes in the country.
Mark noted the tremendous progress recorded by the armed forces had also been complemented by their “dogged determination, unwavering loyalty and sincerity to ensure the forces of evil did not succeed in derailing the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan”.
The Senate President said this, weekend, at the closing ceremony of the Chief of Air Staff’s 10th annual golf tournament at the Makurdi Golf Club.
Commending the Air Force Chief for the tournament, Mark urged members of the armed forces to “continually strive towards nation-building and the protection of the nation’s territorial integrity.”
Mark, who was represented by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Air Force, Senator Ahmed Alkali, also said: “This tournament should be sustained because it was aimed at improving the spirit of sportsmanship and ensuring that our officers and men are mentally and physically fit to discharge their statutory responsibilities at all times.”
